Japanese Sigma Plus works on PSTV

For anyone interested, if you have a PSTV the Japanese version of Sigma Plus works on it. It's very cool, even has full English text option in game.
You just have to turn on touch screen at certain points to do projectile shooting like at the radio tower etc.

This is good to know as Sigma plus was the main reason I wanted a PSTV in the first place. Not sure I will get around to it soon but definitely something I will try out for video purposes. There is virtually nothing out there for the Vita versions.

Across the board I think PSTV's are region free, the PAL versions of Sigma Plus 1&2 are blacklisted on PSTV due to the touch screen use for Ninpo etc, but there's a video on Youtube of a guy literally getting the NTSC US version of Sigma Plus 2 working just by refreshing the menu - when it was thought to be blacklisted in US - even according to Sony's site, unless they patched it?
Finding that the Japanese version of Sigma Plus 1 wasn't blacklisted was a Godsend, although it's relatively easy to mod a PSTV (that even has later firmware) and get all games playable - due to a process of modding a back up of PSTV save data or something.
